About me

A mum of 2 boys living in Cheshire with my partner dog and cats. 
I started making cards with my children after being given a cardmaking kit as a gift. I'd never made cards before and to be honest the gift got put way in the cupboard for quite some time until one rainy day when my children were at a loss as to what they could do. 
Out came the cardmaking kit and we all enjoyed some family time cutting and sticking to our hearts content. Suprising myself at how much I enjoyed it I then started purchasing more papercraft items and making cards as a hobby.

Friends saw my makes and asked me to make some for them to give to their family and friends and so my hobby began to grow. It was whilst visiting my family one weekend that I attended my first cardmaking class, I was a little anxious as to what it would be like but went along and thoroughly enjoyed learning new techniques and using these fabulous new products that mixed and matched perfectly.    
Of course those products were Stampin' Up! 

My addiction for Stampin' Up! products was so great that when the lovely lady who I had previously ordered my products through suggested I should become a demonstrator myself and enjoy the benefits I decided this was the next step. 

I haven't looked back since joining Stampin' Up! as an independent demonstrator.  I love that I can share my papercraft passion with others and we can help and inspire each other with our creative ideas. It fits perfectly into my family life and is something everyone of all ages and abilities can enjoy too!
